    As a rough and ready solution at my NFP radio station we use a uni directional dynamic mic with an xlr to mini cable/adapter. Sounds just fine.

    Hey I bro I was looking for the same thing myself here is what I found

    I was looking online for a few hours and here is what I found.

    this guy has some sample on his site and is a podcast consultant. not bad for a 20 mic. dont get the radio shack one cause I got it and it sucks....

    I also have a rode NT3 but that is for the mac and audio programs I am making. I use a M-audio USB interface for that and it rocks with garage band.

    hope that helps...

    you can hear the quality of the rode mic on my leap first video

    I'm also a fan of an XLR->1/8" cable. It allows you to use any mic in your arsenal if you so desire. very handy. Having said that, the $15 mic that rockstarinlife mentions sounds pretty cool.

    there's another tip on that website of using a lavalier or one of their other mics clipped onto the brim of a baseball cap. nice idea. keeps it out of the way and it follows if the head turns. As long as they're comfortable wearing a hat, that seems like a great idea.
